I have my W&G Chain stitch... and now that i've discovered my Necchi is dead on arrival im rather bummed. I was hoping to have a reliable (lock stitch) work horse that i cant kill... since my new (as in new electric machine thats probably less then 10 years old) hates me and im always having problems with the bobbin! i thought an antique would be a better idea vs the newer computerized ones. due to being heavy duty and sturdy and hopefully easier?? i dont know.
i know the first and for most suggestion will be Singer. which is totally going to be considered... if not for popularity but due to ease of part finding. (i found 2 Singer 15 clones at a thrift store about 30 mins north of here but have not gone to see them yet. not enough time... not open on my days off etc.)
So any suggestions would be welcomed!
thanks in advance!
(and if you want to recommend a new machine that a newbie like me cant possibly kill and that i can finish one project in one sitting you can private message me the info to keep this thread off topic free!)
